Explore like a local.

In Bothell, you'll find your biggest challenge is how to decide what to do first. A few ideas:

Go wine tasting.  Woodinville Wine Country and over 100 wineries and tasting rooms dot the countryside and are waiting for you, just five minutes from downtown Bothell.  Read more in the wine section of this site or even book a Sip & Stay Package!

Sip spirits.  Four craft distilleries are open for tasting in next-door Woodinville. Sip handcrafted vodka, whiskey, grappa and more.  Check out these fine distilleries:  Pacific Distillery, Woodinville Whiskey Company, Soft Tail Spirits and Project V Distillery and Sausage Co.

Go two-wheeling.  Hit the Sammamish River Trail which connects to the 27-mile long Burke-Gilman Trail.  Cycle to the wineries or the Red Hook Brewery for a gorgeous ride and a picnic lunch. Need a bike?  Rent a cruiser from Bothell Ski & Bike.

Go shopping!  How can you get the most deals in a weekend? Think of Bothell as a hub and spoke shopping strategy. Stay in Bothell and be smack in the middle of over 500 stores: shopping central. 

Take in a show.  The Northshore Performing Arts Center brings 20 performances a year including musical, dance, national and regional musical acts to Bothell.

Swing.  Bothell's scenic Wayne Golf Course ofers 18 holes for a par of 65.  Or visit the Golf Club at Echo Falls, just a 10-minute drive away, famous for their difficult 17th hole.

Visit Seattle's attractions. In less than 30 minutes you can be in Seattle and when your feet are tired, back in Bothell again!  Visit the fish throwers at the Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and the ever-educational Pacific Science Center.

Tweet. Not with twitter either.  Go birdwatching on the interpretive trail within the 58 acres of protected wetlands that surround the University of Washington Bothell. 

Explore wellness. Attend a weekend seminar at Bastyr University, an internationally recognized leader in natural medicine, health and wellness.

Be full of hot air.  Get some aerial perspective and take a hot air balloon ride, drifting effortlessly over Bothell, Woodinville Wine Country and our neighboring communities.

Take flight and land in the water!  Kenmore Air, the world's largest seaplane based airline is just down the street.  Hop a quick flight to the spectacular San Juan Islands, watch orca whales breech on a whale watch or see purple and orange starfish on a guided sea kayak tour.
